Language and Speech Improvement for Kindergarten and First Grade. A Supplementary Handbook.
Cole, Roberta; And Others
The 16-unit language and speech improvement handbook for kindergarten and first grade students contains an introductory section which includes a discussion of the child's developmental speech and language characteristics, a sound development chart, a speech and hearing language screening test, the Henja articulation test, and a general outline of daily goals and activities. The 16 teaching units are organized around speech sounds that are most likely to be defective (such as s, f, r and th) and include activities selected to achieve language goals (such as association of the sound with an animal or familiar object, listening for the sound in a story, using pictures which require children to discriminate between sounds, and games and fingerplays which necessitate utilization of the correct sound). Many instructional materials are provided within the handbook, including sketches, puppet patterns, and stories about Koko the Koala Bear and Sharon and the Seashell. An appendix lists supplementary materials such as books, activity kits, filmstrips, records, and picture cards. (LH)
